The company said it is looking for those active in the entire hydrogen value chain to put themselves forward for the programme as part of an effort to accelerate the roll-out of hydrogen tech.

Selected start-ups will then have access to an acceleration process lasting between four and six months, with research and development support, as well as mentoring, networking and technology testing.

On the launch, Cosma Panzacchi, Executive Vice-President Hydrogen at Snam said, “HyAccelerator is aimed at boosting the development of the hydrogen ecosystem by focusing on the most promising technologies and facilitating their entry into the market.

“Through this initiative, Snam will come into contact with the most innovative start-ups in the sector at a global level, strengthening its role as an enabler of the hydrogen supply chain and energy transition.”

At the end of the programme, selected start-ups will conduct feasibility studies with Snam for future hydrogen projects. Snam will then explore and support these technologies.

US DOE, General Motors, Microsoft and Plug Power

What does the US Department of Energy (DOE), General Motors, Microsoft and Plug Power have in common? They’re all speaking at H2 View’s North American Virtual Hydrogen Event in October. Will you be joining us on October 19?

North America is in a prime position to lead efforts in decarbonisation, but it still has great distances to travel. The region has been giving chase in a race to green hydrogen dominated by Europe and Asia-Pacific. If policymakers and industry can work together and take the right steps to realise a hydrogen vision, the region is perfectly placed to expand its global energy leadership at scale and speed.

What lessons can be learned from Europe’s policymakers? What are the challenges to be overcome? What are the strengths and opportunities? How can North America go from giving chase to taking a lead in hydrogen? These are all questions our virtual event will address across H2 View’s four pillars of Mobility, Power, Policy and Technology.
